July 10, 2014 — There’s an appealing romanticism to Marina Evans’ “California,” a song in which the Golden State stands for some better future while the song’s persona stands amid the rubble. The sweet-voiced singer-songwriter brings a sort of wistfulness to the song that creates a sort of quiet hopefulness. It’s lovely work, and just a mere drop in Evans’ rich songbook. Marina Evans performs at 8 p.m. July 12 at the Vanilla Bean Café, 450 Deerfield Road, Pomfret. (860) 928-1562. $10. (Victor D. Infante)
